Anyways, I don't update here that much anymore. I'm mostly on my tumblr. Any pieces I upload will mostly be finished pieces. All sketches and WIPs end up on my art blog on tumblr (nocturnenebula).
But a few things.
I can't believe it's already August.
And I've done some hard thinking.
A lot has changed. I no longer want to go to the originally preferred school, Evergreen, to pursue a Bachelor's in Illustration or one in Business Management. To some people I may be making a fairly poor choice, but it's what I want to do. I am happy with my current job even though I'm under some stress from what I need to do lately, but it will pass.
I'm planning on applying for Digipen's fall / winter quarter, whichever one I may end up being accepted in. I'm going to pursue a BFA in Digital Arts and Animation. The hard part is summing up the courage to write my essay in a positive manner- the easy part is filling up my portfolio. I'm confident based on my skills that I could get in, I'm just not as confident when it comes to the writing portion.
I might attend Aki-Con. If I'm going to get an artist booth there, I'll have to save up my money (mainly for school). I am no longer spending my money extravagantly. The last luxury I'm spending is one last commission and this convention until I am better off financially.
I can afford a booth and everything, but I think I will need to do a few commissions in order to pay for prints, stands, and other merchandise to have available for the convention. So, eventually, I will make a post about commissions in the near future, possibly at the end of this week. Stay tuned if you are interested.
